The pan-Yoruba social-political group, Afenifere, has urged President Bola Tinubu
to ensure that the Port Harcourt Refinery begins operation in December as
Recall that the Federal Government had assured Nigerians that the local refinery
would commence production by December.
Minister of State for Petroleum and oil Resources, Heineken Lokpobiri, while
inspecting the rehabilitation work at the Port Harcourt Refining Company Limited
plant declared that it would begin operation before the end of the year.
Speaking on the present economic situation of the country, Afenifere, in a
communique issued at the end of its caucus meeting in Akure, urged the
government to stick to the promise.
The group believes that the price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, otherwise known
as petrol, would crash if the local refineries are made to work.
